Regulation, degradation, shaming, blaming - enough! Is it time for sexual liberation yet? We talk a lot about sex but not often enough about pleasure, On today's show we try to make up for that and hear from some bloggers, activists and educators who are practicing very positive consent.

We must recognize that “pleasure is a measure of freedom,” that’s the first ambition writer, healer, and teacher adrienne maree brown has for her book and guide, “Pleasure Activism: The Politics of Feeling Good.” In our movements and communities, we’re constantly trying to find ways to measure liberation and freedom, and love seems like as good a yardstick as any.

White Supremacy and the Covid crisis aren’t separate. They’re linked. Defunding public health services and deregulating gun ownership have been catastrophic for public health and yet, the majority of white voters support exactly those policies. The spectacle of hundreds of mostly white, unmasked Trump supporters crammed into indoor rally venues during a pandemic exemplifies this phenomenon. In this interview, conducted just days before the Memorial Day murder of George Floyd, physician and...

September 11 is not only an infamous date in the U.S.--in Chile, it marks the anniversary of the coup that overthrew Salvador Allende. This year, 33 miners will spend that anniversary trapped underground, and Greg Grandin notes that Chile is seeing what amounts to the "Shock doctrine with a human face" under its current regime--deregulation leading to safety issues like that in the mine.

As everyone probably knows, the Reverend Martin Luther King, Jr. was killed in Memphis in 1968 by an assassin's bullet, but it's often forgotten that he was in Memphis joining the sanitation workers' fight for fair wages and working conditions. King's support for labor, particularly low-wage public workers, was a theme of his work for most of his life, and to honor that legacy, we bring you a segment of the speech he gave to those workers the day before his death.
